    Switches

    NameGamesRequired?Description
    SW_ABothFalse

    This setting won't work properly due to a programming error. When used, it's supposed to prevent the player from entering and using the cannon while this switch is deactivated. This is not always the case though. Activating and deactivating the switch will temporarily fix this issue, but using the cannon will trigger the bug again.

    SW_BBothFalse

    If used, the switch will be activated while the player is inside the cannon. It will be deactivated again once the player leaves the cannon through any means.

    Setup

    NameGamesRequired?Description
    CameraBothFalse

    Used when entering the cannon.
